Stewart, after making several ef forts to get .posse* sicn of the animal, and failed, went to a justice of the peace and got out replevin papers for the animal, and had himself sworn in as a police officer. When he went to the Barber home, armed with the proper papers, to recover the property, a quarrel ensued and Barber fired a shot at Stewart. The bullet struck him in the stomach and he fell to the ground. Stewart, who was lying on the ground whipped out his revolver, according to reports, and tired seyeral shots at Barber, but none of them struck the mark. Barber, still angered, fired another shot which struck Stew art in thn heart, it is said the last shot produced instant death. Parties who came to La Junta to get a casket at the La Junta Mortuary for the dead man. brought the news of the shoot ing to La Jun'a.
